The Hardest Job

Text (Luke 14:33) "In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple." (New International Version)

Thought starters
Is it sad that summer is over this weekend? What happens now? What will be different? School, homework, going to bed earlier, Worship Centers begin next week.

What will you give up now that you are back in school? Sleeping in, swimming, playing all day, vacation, just to name a few.

Jesus reminds us today that it is very important to give up everything to be his disciple. What is a disciple? A disciple is a person who learns a student or follower of a teacher. Who is the teacher we follow?

How hard would that be to give up everything and follow him? Is being a disciple an easy or a hard job?

It is a hard job.

This Labor Day weekend we are reminded of the great opportunities God gives us every summer to do special things, like swimming and playing all day. It is also very important to learn about Jesus. To hear about the wonderful things he did and said. We learn about him in the Worship Centers each Sunday.

It is where we leave some of our "fun" things behind and take this special time to learn how to be a better disciple. Even though it is a hard job. It is fun to learn how to be his disciple.

Prayer-Dear Lord, help us to be your follower, your disciple. Teach us more about this special job you have for us. Amen
